0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can. INoS. The colour is that of a beer protesting being poured. Headless, defiantly transparent. Sweet strangely vegetal aroma but not as anemicly offensive as the previous beer. Boring, bland, watery. Dilute apple juice finish. Flavour is as inoffensive as the words of a mime.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Beer #5 in the line-up at The International Night Of Swill, and the second in the Columbian one-two punch provided by tupalev. Like the Club Colombia, this comes in a 296 mL can with foil on top. It also features some futbol player on the can. Very pale yellow colour with a thin white head. Aroma of canned peas and grass. Has a bit more flavour than the Club Colombia (which isn’t hard to do), but still not very good.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle poured yellow with a good white fizzy head.
Aroma of corn and malt.
Flavor is slightly bitter and mostly corn.
About what I expected from this type of beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Gold with poor thin head of big bubbles. Smells like a weak pilsener, thin grassy hops. Light bitterness up front and in finish. Some sweetness. Body is a little thicker than expected. Better than expected.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale gold pour. Small, quick settling, white head. Malt and corn aroma with hints of fruit. What little taste there is matches the aroma, but very close to nothing. Light body, bitter finish. Good thing I only bought a single.

Out of the variety pack this was the best. it had some fruity flavors mixed in with the nauseating amounts of corn. think of it like budweiser with some ethnic fruit extract. goddamn.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
malty aroma, pours a nice gold, little to no head, not much to the taste, malty and light, pretty smooth, weird bitterness to finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I was expecting much worse, but hey, at least its not in a clear bottle self inflicting itself to skunkiness. Pours a perfectly transparent gold with a small white head. Aroma has a straw/light malt quality to it, reminds me almost of flower and dough. Taste starts with a quick malt hint, faint caramel/honey quality then quickly fades into a subtle bitter finish. Taste kinda has a dough thing to it. This brew was very light and clean.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pleasantly surprised to say the least. Had at Dona Emilia’s - a South American restaurant in Austin, TX. Dark golden appearance, light white head, quickly dissipating. Aroma has a white chablis essence to it - rather pleasant. Flavor had some honey sweetness to it and was lacking that corn flavor that a lot of this ilk seem to have. Mouthfeel was decent. Overall, a good companion to the spicy Pattacones Rellenos and Bristec a la Criolla I had.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Nasty adjuncty swill, this is.
